Digestive issues such as heartburn, nausea, and bloating can make every meal a minefield when eating the wrong foods triggers an uncomfortable or too-full feeling. A Reglan IV can help soothe your symptoms for much-needed relief.
With Mobile IV Nurses, you have the option to include Reglan in our IV treatments as an additional ingredient. Contact us to see how an IV with Reglan can help you.
What Is Reglan?
Reglan is the brand-name version of metoclopramide. It belongs to a class of anti-nausea drugs called antiemetics. This medication typically treats heartburn, nausea, and vomiting.
Reglan also stimulates the stomach to help food pass through, emptying the digestive tract. People with diabetes may take Reglan when they have trouble emptying their stomachs, a condition called diabetic gastroparesis. Many people ask if Reglan helps with constipation, but it is usually not a recommended treatment.
Reglan IV Benefits
Reglan can help ease symptoms of several digestion-related problems, including:
The unpleasant burning in your chest is caused when stomach acid moves into the esophagus. You may feel heartburn after eating spicy or fatty foods, or when you are lying down. Reglan is designed to help people with chronic heartburn, alleviating symptoms so the esophagus can heal from any damage caused by the stomach acid.
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
People who regularly struggle with acid reflux may have GERD. You may want to try Reglan for GERD if modifications to your diet and lifestyle haven’t produced results, but you’re not ready for surgical intervention.
- Diabetic gastroparesis
People with diabetes sometimes have difficulty emptying the stomach of food. Reglan stimulates the upper intestines to move food through the digestive tract. This also helps reduce nausea, vomiting, and bloating.
- Severe nausea
Reglan may be helpful for people suffering intense nausea induced by surgical anesthetic or chemotherapy.
Who Can Benefit From Reglan?
You may want to try an IV with Reglan if you have any symptoms associated with the digestive issues mentioned above or struggle with ulcers, appetite loss, or a full feeling after eating.
A Reglan IV takes quick, powerful effect compared to oral versions of the medication. IV fluids enter the bloodstream immediately for maximum absorption, so you don’t have to wait as long to experience relief with an IV with Reglan.
